Alive and Kicking - The Nerdy Fashionista is Back!

In case you didn't realize...I've been gone for quite some time.  Let's just say, that life gets in the way of the fun stuff.  For those of you who know me personally, you know that 2012 hasn't been very smooth thus far.  In January I was diagnosed with Celiac's disease and recently my husband was diagnosed with epilepsy.  Besides all of the medical ailments, we have moved around and changed jobs and let's just say it's been a little...interesting.

A few of my readers asked me why I had stopped blogging and I normally would point to the obvious factor - no time!  However, when I considered how much I spend on the net any way (I may have an addiction to the Facebook game WeTopia!) I realized that time really had little to do with my MIA status. In fact, it had more to do with the fact that my lifestyle had changed.  You see, having the moves and the months of unemployment has hit the budget pretty hard and my husband and I went from a very comfortable lifestyle to penny pinching.  This has caused me to have to cut back on a lot of extras like mani/pedi's, massages, shopping splurges, and fashionista-like activities.

However, the other day while waiting on a prescription at CVS and perusing through some of the "As Seen on TV aisle" I saw the Electric Pedi Spin (the battery powered version of the pedi egg) and thought, "what the heck?"

So, $10 later I was at home and trying out my latest purchase.  And you know what?  The thing really worked!  Sure it wasn't quite as relaxing as the spa, but after ignoring the sound and my husband's terrified expression, I realized that my feet were feeling just as soft as after a pedicure and it clicked!  I can still write my blog, but now I can focus more on being savvy and saving all of us a little moolah while still getting our fashion on!  

In short, I'm back and hopefully more budget friendly.  I may not be on here every day, but I hope to bring you guys lots of great ideas to freshen up your look without breaking the bank!
